Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

Dear child, I un­der­stand your frus­tra­tions with the world—there is so much cru­elty even to those who seek to live out your Fa­ther’s will. Es­pe­cially to those. I know of this first­hand.

“But I say to you, love your en­e­mies and pray for those who per­se­cute you, so that you may be sons of your Fa­ther who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the right­eous and the un­righ­teous.”

What I seek to show you is that the cul­ti­va­tion of your lov­ing heart is your gain no mat­ter what ef­fect it pro­duces on your neigh­bor. Your heart is like a sun shed­ding ben­e­fi­cial light on all who ap­proach. Your job in Me is to keep that light burn­ing bright. To do that, you need to keep your heart pure and open. Ev­ery time you give and ev­ery time you love with­out re­gard to be­ing loved, you are pu­ri­fy­ing and strength­en­ing your heart, your light. Also, ev­ery time you share your love with Me, you are for­ti­fy­ing this lov­ing cen­ter.

The stronger you shine in Me, the less other peo­ple’s cru­elty will touch you. In­deed, as you be­come a brighter light, you’ll dis­solve their dark­ness. As much as pos­si­ble, try to keep your mind from dwelling on un­kind­ness. In­stead, train your heart on Me. Do you have a minute to unite with Me in love right now? I’m here with my arms open…al­ways.
